From Design and Technology …

Years 7 and 8 Project Week

Last week’s challenge for Year 7 and 8 was organised by the Design and Technology Department, with the theme being Design and Technology Bingo! We wanted to create a challenge that would be fun and exciting, and encompasses the different Design and Technology specialisms.

Please see the grid below to see what the students had to do. We are incredibly proud of the work that the Year 7 and 8 students produced, and we are sure you will agree with us that it looks like they had great fun!

As a department we have been overwhelmed by the full participation from the Year 7 and 8s, with many commenting how much they enjoyed completing the tasks. Many have been rewarded with Reward Points for excellent effort and outcomes. Perhaps families might enjoy attempting the Bingo Challenge as something to do over the summer together – have fun!

Year 11 Bridging Work for A Level Photography 

Year 11 Photography A-level Bridging students have been working incredibly hard on their project ‘Aspects of Light’. I am highly impressed by their creativity and resourcefulness to create their own shoots with what they have at home. Some really excellent work.

From Russian …

Year 7 Russian Cultural project: June 22nd -26th

The Year 7 Russian culture project was to make a picture dictionary using a Russian food word for every (or very nearly every!) letter of the Cyrillic alphabet. The dictionary could be digital or paper and had to work in two ways: as a reference tool for the Russian alphabet and pronunciation and as an introduction to Russian food culture. Year 7 Russian did a marvellous job, showing excellent research skills and dedication to delightful presentation. Moreover they still remembered the Russian alphabet after three months of lockdown!

Year 8 Russian Cultural project: June 22nd-26th

Year 8 Russian found out about key events and personalities in Soviet and Russian exploration of space, from the launch of ‘Sputnik’ in 1957 to the present day. They had also to provide a little Russian space vocabulary. The results of their research could be presented in a format of their choice, from power point to model rocket. Year 8’s work was individual and inspiring, showing true engagement in the theme, respect for detail and response to the magnitude of the world-changing achievements they described. Спасибо!
